“Luxury and customer service, great for work”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Overall, this facility provided a lovely, out of the way business stay, with great customer service, a warm staff, and really nice accommodations. The facility is a bit difficult to get to because of its location, and the need to do a u turn once you pass the hotel to get there on a one way causeway. But once there, great service starts at the front door. There is valet parking or DIY parking, either convenient. Front desk staff were really great, and answered all my questions easily. Room was superb, with a view of the water, so I could wake up to the sunrise. Bedding and bathroom were well appointed. I ate food that was through their meeting catering, and it was good. I did not use their restaurant.
Downsides to this location include where they are. You are kindof off on your own campus. Don't expect to walk anywhere, and there's no convenient drug store on the corner for whatever you forgot. The other downside is the significant charge the airport taxis charge after dark - a minimum $15-20 charge for what would normally be a $5 cab ride. That's not the hotel's fault - just know it ahead of time and work to catch the hotel's hourly shuttle back and forth to the airport.
Luxurious accommodations and great customer service will help me get back to this hotel!

My partner and I loved the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay. So much so, it has become our favorite 'airport hotel' - but it's so much more than that. The hotel sits on a large property that contains wonderfully landscaped grounds, a wilderness trail and boardwalk, multiple restaurants, and a rooftop patio with amazing 270 degree views of Tampa Bay, Rocky Point, and beyond.

With all the good, comes a few small downsides. For one, the hotel can be expensive. If you are paying rack-rate, you're paying too much. However, if you can get a good deal on one of the travel sites as I did, snap it up. Also, like all business-centered hotels, internet is expensive at $10 a day. On the other hand, parking is free, which is good, because you'll need a car, as there are no stores, restaurants (besides those on-site), or markets for a couple of miles.

Given that most high-end business hotels have similar pricing structures, I would say the addition of the natural elements really sets this Hyatt apart, and makes it one of my favorite hotels.

I grew up in the Tampa/Clearwater area adn this hotel is an ideal location to take advantage of both areas. It is very close to the airport-you will be there within 10 minutes! The hotel offers a lovely view of the Cortney Cambell Causeway, especially if viewd from Armani's restaraunt on the top floor. This establishment used to be one of my favorite fine dining places in all of Tampa. They have excelllent food, amazing cocktails, a very relaxing piano bar, and an outdoor patio that overlooks both Tampa and Tampa Bay. I highly reccomend the other restaraunt, Oyster Catchers for the best Sunday brunch I have EVER experienced!

This hotel is a good business traveler hotel near the airport. It is out of the way from downtown and Busch Gardens, so the extra driving and parking costs are an inconvenience. Wireless internet costs $10/day, which is a huge rip off, and the business center computers are usable by swiping your credit card. Breakfast for a family of four was over $80. We would have gotten a better value at the Hyatt Place.

Room Tip: If you are an aviation buff, you can get a great view of the airport and watch planes land all day a...

The hotel is nice and convenient. The only downside is there are no stores, markets, restaurants within walking distance. We took a taxi from the airport and had to use the hotel for everything. It is a very nice hotel with a boardwalk over a marshland. The pool area was nice, albeit small. The hotel staff were incredibly polite and helpful. Everyone!! Usually you meet a couple sour apples, but everyone was great. The other thing that was a first: the room service omelet came so hot I had to let it cool off 5 minutes before eating it. How often does that happen? It's usually lukewarm. We did eat at their seafood restaurant (I think it was called the Oyster Catcher) and it was excellent. So, if you are looking for a place to stay by the airport, I would recommend this hotel.
